    1. This is Malory s Le Morte Darthur, but separated into separate stories and, in the case of one tale The Knight of the Cart actually re located to a different point in the story The Grail story is so heavily abridged that it would be incomprehensible to someone who hadn t already read the Morte There are much better texts of Malory thann this


    2. Sir Thomas Malory d 1471 spent much of his final 20 years in prison During those decades he translated into English and rewrote the French Arthurian romances Stories of Grail quests, lovelorn knights, and the Round Table had been wildly popular literature in the 12th and 13th centuries.Eugene Vinaver writes in the Introduction that Malory was a man bred up in arms who valued the dignity of knighthood above all else Most of his knights are men of brief speech and unsophisticated behaviour They en [...]


    3. I understand how people could have trouble reading this book I almost put it down after the first couple of stories because it was incredibly boring, but those are the tales of secondary character knights Sir Galahad, etc Once you get to the stories of principal characters, it becomes much interesting.


    4. This was a fun read It wasn t what I was expecting there wasn t much Arthur and it needed Merlin He was hardly present at all, just briefly in the beginning There must be other stories or books with Merlin because there didn t seem to be enough here to account for all the stories behind him Still, I enjoyed it.


    5. Ok, ok, I know this is classic literature but I just could not get myself through it I can only take so much of nobility having their honor offended and self righteously smiting each other down Which, by the way, does not always mean they die At least I learned that much Maybe I ll try it again at a later point in my life.


    6. As much as i wanted to enjoy this book, i found it mostly to be very repetitive The majority of the book seems to consist of good knight sees damsel in distress from bad knight, knights fight, good knight wins repeat ad infinitum Only the improvement towards the end quest for the Holy Grail onwards saved this book from being truly dull


    7. I was amazed at how often everyone smote one another I like the Arthur stories, but it can be a bit repetitive after a while A lot of damsels wandering through the forest and then of course the smiting.


    8. This was not my favorite I can t figure out if it was the language or just that I thought the stories were toned down from the French original It is interesting though the differences that were made between this one and The Death of King Arthur.


    9. Hey, it s the Malster The Malster King Arthur and his knights Chivalry Maidens in distress Magic Wizards What else do you need Classic


    10. As a little girl, my dad would read to me from this book I have find memories of the stories of King Arthur and his knights.


    11. Required reading about King Arthur didn t feel like required reading I enjoy the stories and this is one of the earlier compiled versions, I think.


    12. I did not like this at all too much jousting and slaying and knighting and too less emotion Are knights supposed to be hot tempered and without a conscience


    13. I am really glad to be familiar with the original English language Arthur myths However, they were not what I was expecting Still, well worth reading.


    14. Nice to get back to a favourite of mine from my post uni days and this is a very good selection of the most interesting bits of Malory.


    15. Beh, la leggenda di Re art e del Santo Graal ha sempre il suo fascino Gi da piccola mi intrigava molto.


    16. A very dry and often unintentionally hilarious book It s interesting to learn the stories of King Arthur, especially to realize that these were the folktales of a people I didn t find myself drawn to the stories at all, partly because of how ridiculous some of them were King Arthur kills 100,000 Roman men and is crowned Emperor, King Arthur agrees to kill his wife because someone choked to death during a dinner she cooked , but also because I saw very little value in any of the characters with t [...]


    17. Wonderful concept a 21st century girl dragged back by Merlin s magic to become King Arthur Ah, King Britt Arthurs The story is fairly well conceived as well Unfortunately, the writing impedes the telling at the very least, this self pubbed series of books 3 in this volume with following should meet the eyes of a proof reader It should be run past an editor as well, but even eliminating the errors repeated or erroneous words would help the flow On the plus side, Britt Arthurs is delicious as a c [...]


    18. I ve been interested in Arthurian legend and wanted to go back to one of the roots of the stories, and Malory s is always mentioned Instead of reading the full book I got this version with selected tales Yes, these stories were written hundreds of years ago and the writing style is rather old fashioned, making it a little difficult to get through The plot was not nearly as exciting as I was expecting it to be I have to admit that several parts of the book made me laugh, even though I m not sure [...]


    19. King Arthur Lancelot Salah satu kisah dari British Isles yg selalu bikin gue penasaran Jujur, hampir semua novel klasik yang gue baca, berawal dari ketika gue nonton film Mulai baca buku ini juga karena nonton film King Arthur, tapi di film itu ceritanya happy ending dan sangat disimplify Setelah baca buku2 ttg King Arthur and His Knights, gue semakin mengerti betapa rumitnya kisah mereka Semakin sulit untuk menilai tindakan Genevieve terhadap Arthur ataupun Lancelot, kisah ttg Kinghts lainnya p [...]


    20. I enjoyed it because the whole thing was like a Monty Python sketch Hilariously over the top As far as I can tell, back in the day, jousting fulfilled the same purpose as hand shaking does today Everyday was pure epicness, and the battle wasn t over until you d skewered five men on your spear with a single strike Stomach sliced open Deal with it you can still fight on from dawn to dusk Favourite quote Sir Lancelot increased in fame and worship above all men, for he overthrew all comers, and neve [...]


    21. This book was written by a guy in a jail cell in the late 1400 s and is based off of the popular oral story telling of his day I like that it is broken into a collection of tales, rather than one long form book One can choose a character Arthur, Launcelot, Sir Gareth and read his tale independently There is a lot of he smote him , confusing action sequences, and characters that suddenly appear and disappear with no introduction nor resolution, but such is the oral tradition simple narrative that [...]


    22. Enjoyable, nice to see dialogue and less fighting than the other Arthurian romances I ve read Interesting to see the ways that Malory shifts around, and adds and subtracts from, the Mort Artu, particularly the great lengths he goes to change Lancelot and Guinevere s relationship I prefer the Mort Artu overall, spare the tedious battle sequences, but I m glad that Malory s legacy kept Arthurian literature alive.


    23. A lot of knights fighting The author uses always the same words to describe them, the rithm is from slow to very slow eccc.Neverthanless it was intresting to read about this topic in Italy we don t read so much about King Arthur and his corpus of legends and to try something different from the plane writing of today.For non english readers a lot of thou, thy In some passages it is no easy reading


    24. Thomas Malory, knight and adventurer of the 1400s, died in prison after penning these epic tales They are the original stories of King Arthur, Lancelot, Merlin, Gawain and the Holy Grail but the olde English is smoothed over to make accessible The popular heroes in books and movies of today are all rooted in King Arthur and his Knights.

    26. The end of the Roman Empire has always interested me I love the romantic story development as a Empire of Britannia fell.




    27. the only reason i didnt like this is it s an old style and i m into artistic creativeness other than that, if you like tales, go ahead.
